A San Antonio Police Department officer sexually assaulted a man while he was on duty, an affidavit stated.
According to an arrest affidavit, a man told police that Officer Craig Nash picked him up at 3 a.m. Thursday near the intersection of Guadalupe and Zarzamora streets, handcuffed him and told him to lie down in the back of a police cruiser.
The man told police that Nash, 39, drove him to an unknown location and sexually assaulted him, the affidavit stated. Nash then drove the man back to a school on Guadalupe Street and drove off, the affidavit stated.
The man then went to a police substation, where he reported the alleged incident, the affidavit stated. He then picked Nash out of a photo lineup. The police cruiser Nash was driving was also tracked by a GPS system. An arrest warrant for Nash was issued and he was arrested.
“I’m angry, I’m frustrated and I’m disappointed,” said Police Chief William McManus. “This is a slap in the face of every officer at the police department. We will not for a second, tolerate this or make any excuses.”
Nash was being held Friday in the Bexar County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $27,500. He has been with SAPD since 2003 and has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation.
